I tried to get it installed, but while I get different UI versions, the option is not showing for me, dispite following instructions. So the Skype insider program is a bit wonky in and off itself.

In terms of NDI per caller, its the same with any NDI source. Basically, NDI re-connects to a unique name. So if skype (or Vmix) makes an output with a different name, it will show up as a unique source. The quickfix for this is making several NDI inputs, and using right mouse button menu on the input to select the correct NDI source when caller changes.

Looking around the Skype forums, it seems NDI is available to some and not to others, and it may work one day and not the next "as features are added, tested and removed". Having said that, if we are to have any chance of it working at all, about all the comments from Skype staff say we have to download the insiders version.

In my case, the insiders version on my Macbook Pro has NDI, the version on my Windows Skype PC's don't - possibly because neither is Windows 10, but I haven't seen anything from Skype to confirm that.

When I switch on NDI in Skype on my Mac, I see the following in VMix:

Screenshot 1 - the NDI Input Select dialogue shows the correct video from the Skype NDI source
Screenshot 2 - Shows what the final VMix Input displays: nothing at all.

(The reason Skype is showing a VMix multiscreen is just because of the way I have the Skype call set up - the Skype PC in the studio which doesn't have NDI at the moment is calling the Mac which does, the reverse of what normally happens. Hope that makes sense.)

So there seems to be an issue with VMix and Skype with NDI. Just to confirm it is VMix that seems to have a problem:

Screenshot 3 - Shows that Wirecast seems to be capturing the NDI stream correctly.
